29 Jan More Mental Health Support for Post-secondary Students
The HealthyMindsNS website launched on January 16th, 2020, and allows post-secondary students to have easier access to mental health supports.
The site provides access to free, online mental health supports and complements the already established in-person counselling services on campus.
Mental health issues require a spectrum of care. This includes in-person treatment and counselling.
Online services play an important role in providing students with many support options that can be accessed privately and at any time.
HealthyMindsNS understands that mental health is not just the job of the individual to manage, but that as a community, we all play a role in caring for one another.
Each college and university across the province is able to select the programs that best suit their services.
